> His theory about Genesis 1 & 2 is that they are about how God ordered creation (functions and roles) rather than about material creation (how they came to be).

So Genesis isn't providing an historical account of when God created certain aspects of the universe then?

According to this perspective, that is correct. God certain created the material universe (Jn. 1.3; Heb. 1.2), but that's not what Genesis 1 is about.
